CHS Teacher Named MCPS Teacher of the Year
Emily Redding, math teacher at Christiansburg High School, was named MCPS Teacher of the Year. Redding has worked for MCPS for two years.
Redding believes that her role as an educator is to facilitate, guide and encourage students to take information and process, analyze, and create something new with it. “I love to teach, to inspire, and to be that guide,” said Redding.
“Mrs. Redding is unselfish, invested, energetic and creative,” said Tony Deibler, CHS principal. “She connects with her students by fostering positive relationships and by making it crystal clear that she believes in them. She possesses a true knack at adapting to students’ individual differences and needs.”
Redding was chosen from among all of the school level teachers of the year and will move on to the Regional Teacher of the Year competition.
Redding earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics education from Kansas State University and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Radford University. She previously worked at Harrisonburg City Public Schools and Caribe Vista Academy.
The Teacher of the Year is selected at the end of one school year and serves as the Teacher of the Year for the following school year, in order to mirror the state process. Emily Redding is the MCPS Teacher of the Year for 2018-19.
